Oso Negro Café image
Oso Negro Café
😠 I wanted to love this place so much. It is so cute and seems to be so so popular. Unfortunately the coffee/cappuccino was some of the worst we’ve ever had…the coffee was incredibly weak and the milk and foam honestly horrendous…sorry to say this, but the girls behind the counter were super friendly...

Marzano image
Italian restaurant
🫤 I gave this a 2 instead of 5 for dinner only because we were told that we had to vacate our table after having dinner and drinks as the table was reserved for another group. This was only after being seated for 90 minutes. A 90 minute turnover is unreasonable...if the table had a limited sitting t...

The Black Cauldron image
The Black Cauldron
👍👍 The Black Cauldron is a great Sunday date night spot - huge patio in the back and lots of mocktail/cocktail options to try. The theme is clever, but the flavour was right on. Don't be turned off by the strange sounding ingredients - the egg white is whipped into a meringue and really tasty! Desserts...

👍👍 This place has seriously the most delicious gelato I have ever had. Every flavour just tasted so real. Bananas foster and butter rum is what we landed on but oh man was it hard to choose. It’s such a cute little speakeasy themed gelato shop and it’s a must try if you’re in Nelson! Thanks Gina!
